Holding the Fourth of July together…

Posted by  ·  July 1, 2009  ·  Last Updated: July 1, 2009

I am thinking about having a buffet for our brunch instead of setting all of the tables. Just a few supplies, wooden clothes pins, wooden stars, acrylic paint, hot glue …..

I didn’t have a fork but I think I could squeeze it in. If I was being really helpful and not going for the look, it would probably be better to clip the napkin to the back. Actually I think I will just fold the napkin in thirds to slip behind the utensils on the front.  That way they can make it through the buffet line without having to adjust the clip and napkin then hold the utensils—-and it would still be cute.
